How'd it get so bad? First my throttle linkage problems during the fastest lap forced me to pit and left me with the last position.
I thought that the car would be fixed for today's race - unfortunately halfway through the race I had this problem again, and after two laps I was lapped. Still ain't so bad, our car is reliable enough to finish the race with minor difficulties. We're still struggling with our undahpowuhh'd V8 engine.
Let's hope for a better result in Argentina.

As the other Williams seat is free as a canadian driver decided he was too good to race, can the triple formula nippon driver "Barii Mori" have that drive?

By the way until next round, thanks to the hard work of factory's people, we hope to solve our problems affecting electronics and lack of engine power introducing a new package.

I really enjoyed the qual session here! The car didn't let me down, we set it up perfectly during yesterday's free practice, with a bit of gambling today regarding suspension tuning just minutes before the end of the session. It's a great starting point for tomorrow's race and I hope we shaked off our problems from Brazil.

Douglas Mann is at a loss why the Williams, which could qualify on pole in Australia, and 5th in Brazil, can now only manage 15th in Argentina? What's going to happen in qualifying in Imola? 20th? Here's hoping for a points finish and get the championship lead back to himself exclusively.

Pippa Mann is happy to qualify her Mastercard Lola 10th again, equal best with Oz. Here's hoping that she will get a race finish this time!

I finally found time. :)

Buenos Aires, Argentina - Race

Lap 1/20:
The warmup sessions saw some clouds build, and it began raining with around 3 minutes left. This weather remained for the race, and the crowd were in for a (possibly) exciting race. As the lights went out, Jeroen Krautmeir's Prost remained stationary as his electronics had failed. There was more action as Giovanni Roda's excellent start found him passing 4 cars! However, he messed up at turn 1 and promptly slammed into Damon Cannon's Arrows. KO for both cars. Up ahead, Koczo holds on to his lead ahead of Melrose and Christopherson.

Lap 2/20:
Emil Klok's race comes to a premature end as his engine blows up. A shame, as the Tyrrell was in a strong position to fight for a podium finish. There's a four way battle between Koczo, Melrose, Christopherson and Zimmer. Meanwhile, Shizuka overtakes Nurmester without crashing in to him! Yay!

Lap 3/20:
Everyone stays in one piece. The full order is Koczo, Melrose, Christopherson, Zimmer, Shizuka, Nurmester, P.Mann, McAllister, Chapman, D.Mann, Zapatero, de Bock, Jung, Herrtz, Mori, Spencer, Older Jnr, Kevin, Hughes, Davies.

Lap 4/20:
James Chapman hits the wall, and retires. On that same lap, Melrose attempts a move on Koczo, and gets close. Other than that, no action.

Lap 5/20:
Zimmer has dropped back from the leading pack. Pippa Mann, however, has stormed through the field (somehow, I didn't catch it, sorry) and is closing on Zimmer. On that lap, Douglas Mann overtakes Phoenix McAllister.

Lap 6/20:
Ed Kevin's suspension collapses. Koczo maintains his lead, but right behind him, Melrose is forced to give away his second to his teammate.

Lap 7/20:
Melrose isn't giving up. He's holding on to Christopherson's tail, and is taking looks whenever possible. Meanwhile, Pippa Mann's Lola is all over Zimmer's gearbox, and a pass looks imminent.

Lap 8/20:
Koczo isn't using the Jordan Civil War to his advantage, and the two yellow cars are still right behind him. The rain stops, and it's sunny again, but there's still water everywhere. Zimmer continues to hold back P.Mann.

Lap 9/20:
Pippa Mann overtakes Zimmer for fourth! The order is Koczo, Christopherson, Melrose, P.Mann, Zimmer, Shizuka, D.Mann, Nurmester, McAllister, Zapatero, de Bock, Mori, Herrtz, Older Jnr, Jung, Spencer, Hughes, Davies.

Lap 10/20:
The track remains wet. Up ahead, there is drama as Jack Christopherson spears into David Koczo as they turn into turn 1! Replays show that Christopherson's engine blew up, but that doesn't seem like a good reason to slam into your rival. Anyway, Melrose now leads, ahead of Pippa Mann in the Lola.

Lap 11/20:
Phoenix McAllister's clutch fails. Douglas Mann overtakes Hagane Shizuka for fourth.

Lap 12/20:
No retirements, no position changes. No action other than Zimmer continuing to fall back, and Douglas Mann closing in on him. Melrose seems to have this one in the bag, as he maintains the gap between himself and Pippa Mann.

Lap 13/20:
Zimmer mistimes his turn into turn 14, and collides with the wall! He loses his front wing, but it looks like repairable damage. Douglas Mann soon overtakes.

Lap 14/20:
Nurmester is closing on Shizuka, but both of them are being caught at a quicker rate (estimated) by Zapatero and de Bock. Zimmer's gearbox fails.

Lap 15/20:
Full order; Melrose, P.Mann, D.Mann, Shizuka, Nurmester, Zapatero, de Bock, Mori, Older Jnr, Jung, Spencer, Hughes, Davies.

Lap 16/20:
The track is now relatively dry. The first five dive into the pits. All five come out behind Zapatero and Mori.

Lap 17/20:
Zapatero, Mori and Spencer make their pitstops, after their teammates took for the pitlane during the previous lap. The first two rejoin behind Hughes, but Spencer ends up rejoining dead last behind Davies.

Lap 18/20:
Nurmester continues to threaten Shizuka, but no move eventuates. No other events occur.

Lap 19/20:
Nurmester tries several moves, but still finds himself stuck behind Shizuka, who is soaking the pressure excellently.

Lap 20/20:
The race comes to an end. Nobody got lapped, because during the rain, nobody was outright supreme.

An excellent race finally finishing in fourth position. I could have finished third, but for a start, this result is excellent. I'm sorry to see James finishing his race in the wall and I hope he's going to get back on track quick. Also, congratulations to the Manns for both finishing on the podium!

Both Menn on the podium! For the first time ever! Woohoo! But really? A Mastercard Lola finishing ahead of a mid-1990's Williams-Renault together on the podium?

Pippa, to be honest, is just glad to get her first finish, and to beat her brother using a much-inferior car... And Douglas is more disappointed to lose the lead of the championship, but it's a long season yet...

My best qual result so far was wasted. Unfortunately shortly after crossing the start/finish line my engine blew up - it was quite old, had only two races and its mileage was expected to be for another two, but it didn't last for long after throttle problems in Brazil. Next stop - San Marino!
